Thank you Audible - Love It!

Performing Humor - is the tendency of particular cognitive experiences to provoke laughter and provide amusement. The term derives from the humoral medicine of the ancient Greeks, which taught that the balance of fluids in the human body, known as humours (Latin: humor, "body fluid"), controlled human health and emotion. People of all ages and cultures respond to humour. Most people are able to experience humour—be amused, smile or laugh at something funny—and thus are considered to have a sense of humour. The hypothetical person lacking a sense of humour would likely find the behaviour inducing it to be inexplicable, strange, or even irrational. Though ultimately decided by personal taste, the extent to which a person finds something humorous depends on a host of variables, including geographical location, culture, maturity, level of education, intelligence and context.

This was an unexpected, but amazing listen that was really brought together by the cast

Who was your favorite character and why?

Sebastian York was definitely one of the standouts in this cast. His delivery of cheese made me so hungry!

They literally read excerpts from The Encyclopaedia Britannica.

If you could give Excerpts from The Encyclopaedia Britannica a new subtitle, what would it be?

*The best of the best*
